Looks like the hops of boxing fans around the world might be coming true sooner than later. After Mike Tyson shared his training and workout video online, sending fans into a frenzy, Evander Holyfield has just released his own.
The former heavyweight champion revealed last month, “I’m looking forward to stepping up my training sessions and intensity as I prepare for my fight.” And now he has shared a few clips of his intense training on Instagram.
In the first video, the 57-year-old shows off his weights training, appearing to bench press 180 pounds. In the second, he and his trainer take to the beach to work on speed, strength and resistance.
They demonstrate a series of fast footwork drills, then Holyfield shadowboxes with chains weighing his fists down, practices cardio by running while pulling a parachute, and does pushup reps — all while wearing a weighted vest.
Looks like the dreams of 80’s and 90’s boxing fans are soon going to come true. A rematch between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield will definitely set the world on fire.
